Today’s Child Event

Today's Child Flyer 2018

TRAINING FOR THIS GENERATION

 Jennifer Maud has launched Todays Child in 2018 as a training platform for teachers and parents alike. Workshops are offered to train up people that are impacting our next generation. Our children need us, and we need to understand how to make an impact in their lives.

Training sessions can be set up in schools, or with groups of parents directly. Workshops offered can vary depending on need. Both half day, full day and evening workshops are offered.

The event focuses on giving teachers and parents the latest evidence-based research on issues around development, play, technology, burn out, anxiety – to name a few. We envision being the leading experts on the field of paediatric education in schools, medical fields and parenting education.
